Great. So, we'll have the liberal ESPN, and the Jerry Springer-esque Fox. Fox programming will have banter in the booth that matches the level on ESPN's First Take?!

Bah.

I am unimpressed by Fox. I quit watching Fox News, and I find some of Fox's network programming to be garbage.

The sports rights will be key. People watch sports channels for sports. Fox has baseball, soccer and NASCAR along with college football and hoops, so they should be in decent position compared to NBC (NHL, low end college) and CBS (nothing of value) Sports networks. Not quite the ESPN leviathan, but close.

In recent years Fox covered sporting events of interest to me. Everything in the world, in life, is NOT political.

Formula One, DTM (Deutsche Tourwagen Masters), American LeMans Series, 24 Hours of LeMans, Austrailian Super V8, etc. 

Only Speed TV and Fox carried these types of racing, no others.  I am bored in a few minutes, by NASCAR.
